The two hottest commodities in Los Angeles’ white-hot real estate market cannot be created or built – only experienced – and 9380 Sierra Mar Drive ticks both boxes and then some. There’s nothing quite like a home with an amazing view in a choice location. In L.A., it’s tough to beat the sweeping jetliner views and primo location above the vibrant Sunset Strip offered by the exclusive A-List enclave known as the “Bird Streets.” Accessed via a discreet cul-de-sac just off Doheny Drive, the custom-built contemporary residence is built to defy gravity and exceed expectations, offering elusive privacy and a commanding 280-degree view from its prominent perch on the Santa Monica Hills.

Modern lines, a sophisticated interior and a floor plan ideal for entertaining indoors and out reveal how every aspect of the three-story home was designed to celebrate the absolute best of the Los Angeles luxury lifestyle. Glass walls and streamlined interior styling capitalize on the enthralling view and keep the spaces light and airy. Clever architectural details like the black paneled ceiling about the living room create distinctions in the open floor plan without obstructing the view.

Dreaming in La La Land is sweet but waking up in your Kuka Cal King bed to this inspiring panoramic view is divine. Glass walls and skylights pour sunshine into the spacious master bedroom while American walnut flooring lends warmth and coziness to the minimalist design. The ensuite bathroom is both spa and sanctuary with a flawless modern sophistication and a sculptural freestanding tub nestled in a windowed corned for a deep soak with a view.

In the top-of-the-line Italian kitchen, sophisticated neutral color palettes, luxe finishings and a punch of high style from the funky designer light fixtures achieves a look that is modern and sleek with a feel that is warm and inviting. Decked out with Thermador appliances and Caesarstone countertops, this is a kitchen designed to make cooking an enjoyable and stylish affair.

One of the more enchanting aspects of SoCal living embodied by the estate is the seamless melding of indoor and outdoor spaces. Designed for epic hosting, the lounge boasts a full-size bar and mini kitchen and opens up through disappearing glass walls to an expansive outdoor terrace. The main terrace sets a spectacular stage for starry night cocktail parties above the glittering city lights or afternoon BBQs at the alfresco grill and dining patio.  The space is afforded privacy by its unique positioning with ample plush seating and featuring an ultra-modern designed 8ft fire pit,

In an already impressive 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom property, the lower terrace features a showstopping 1,800 sq. ft. semi-circular infinity pool.  Seemingly suspended in the air with sprawling views over the bustling cityscape and beyond to the bright blue of the Pacific Ocean, the pool is a triumph of engineering and style. By night LED lights to illuminate the waters and a water jet feature transforms it into a lively fountain.

Incredible views and a highly coveted half-acre location make this gorgeous 6,750 sqft. Sierra Mar Dr. house a true trophy estate offering the quintessential L.A. luxury lifestyle. Additional amenities include a roomy 10-person theater with reclining chairs, a five-zone Nest thermostat control system and a home gym.
